Opinion by Bob Cu!!inan
With the 1974 major league baseball
season winding to a close, the time
draws near when everyone picks his
favorites for the pennant races.
Dyed-in-the-wool Yankee fans -are
heralding the return of the New York
greats, who have, as of Tuesday,
returned to the top of the American
League East. Others cite the clutch play
of both the Boston Red Sox and the
Baltimore Orioles, who are noted for
their pennant drives.
The other contests seem to be almost
wrapped-up, with the Oakland Athletics
leading the American League West by
more than six games at this writing. The
A's appear to have the momentum
needed to win their division. '
In the National League East, Pitts
burgh and St. Louis are see-sawing
back and forth with their divisional lead.
Pittsburgh is temporarily out in front,
with St. Louis a scant two and one half
games behind.
The National League West is also a
tight contest, with Los Angeles leading
Cincinnati by three and one naif games.
St. Louis should win the National
League contest in the East, and Los
Angeles will win in the West. St. Louis
is fired-up for the closing weeks behind
team leader Lou Brock. Brock's
aggressive play, in the quest of a record
105 career stolen bases, has ignited the
rest of ' the Cardinals as well. Los
Angeles is relying heavily on the power
hitting of Jim Wynn and teammate
Steve Garvey.
In the American League, the Oakland
A's will probably face the Baltimore
Qripjes in the title games. Oakland has
been strong for the greater part of the
season, and they show no signs of
letting down. The Orioles always finish
the season in a flurry, and their superb
hitting and late-season pitching should
make them winners.
Now for the World Series. It looks as
if the A's will continue their recent
dominance of American League baseball
by beating Baltimore to get into the
series. , .
As for the National League, Los
Angeles has the strength to go all the
way. Pittsburgh has had a recent surge
in its pitching staff, but it's doubtful
they can keep it up.
As for the Series itself, your guess is
as good as mine. Oakland has always
done well in the World Series, while the
Dodgers haven't seen a Series title for
many a year. Oakland is a very
morale-oriented ball club, and a few
intra-club hassles over the past season
may have scarred its spirit a little. Los
Angeles has led its division throughout
the entire year, and the title is within
reach.", ,
The Los Angeles Dodgers will win the
World Series., ,
